Report of Cemetery Committee 



The Cemetery Committee, in compliance with the By-laws 
passed by the Town in relation thereto, herewith submit 
their Annual Report, together with the Receipts and Ex- 
penditures for the Year ending Feb. 10, 1873. 

During the past year we have erected massive stone posts, 
and put in an iron gate at the entrance, and built a sub- 
stantial faced wall on either side of it. A building of 
suitable dimensions for the storage of tools, and for occu- 
pancy when occasion requires, has been constructed. Eight 
hundred feet of drain-pipe have been laid, old walls removed, 
grading and levelling done, and such other improvements 
made as the appropriation of the Town would* justify. A 
small outlay will be required annually for several years in 
order to perfect the plans which have been commenced. 
Clearing out the under-brush and setting out shrubbery 
demand immediate attention. The Committee recognize 
with appreciative gratitude the noble gift of the valuable 
and appropriate stone posts at the Cemetery entrance, made 
to the Town by William G. Means, Esq. Twelve lots have 
been sold the past year ; and to the present time thirteen 
persons have been buried in the grounds.

Besides what has been received and expended by the 
Committee according to the foregoing statement, it should 
be added that it has from the first been a principle with the 
Committee in no case to expend money till they already had 
it in hand, or knew where it would come from ; and that 
what they have temporarily borrowed, and whatever is now 
needed to complete the fencing of the grounds, and a few 
smaller items, is guaranteed by friends of the enterprise, so 
that the Town will not be called upon for any grants for this 
object. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.

that the Town make special appropriation for the various classes of ex- 
penditures ; that the account of each be kept under its proper head, and 
that the Treasurer be instructed not to exceed the amount of each appro- 
priation, except in cases of the most extreme necessity. That the Town 
may be aided in making these appropriations we have placed upon pages
